Grenada to lift UK travel ban and reopen tourism sector


Grenada has unveiled plans to reopen its tourism sector in the coming months. The decision follows months of air traffic restrictions.

Prime Minister of Grenada Dr Keith Mitchell predicted that commercial flights from the United Kingdom will restart and hotel properties will reopen next month.

“The UK airlines have now reported that they will be resuming flights from April, which coincides with the movement by some of the hotels to reopen,” PM Mitchell said.

“All efforts are being made to put all systems in place to protect the country as far as the virus is concerned and I must say that we are getting co-operation from the tourism sector at all levels,” he added.

Along with many other countries, Grenada imposed a ban on travel from the UK in an effort to prevent the spread of the highly contagious Kent variant of Covid. Grenada’s Ministry of Civil Aviation announced an indefinite suspension of all air traffic between Grenada and the UK on 21 December 2020.
